BAAR, Switzerland (AP) World champion Peter Sagan earned a record 12th career win at the Tour of Switzerland, sprinting to a second-stage victory on Sunday. Juergen Roelandts of Belgium leads overall.

On a second day of racing on rain-soaked roads, the Slovak was fastest in the sprint finish after a 187.6-kilometer (116.6-mile) route of four laps around Baar.

Maximiliano Richeze of Argentina was second and Michael Matthews of Australia was third, both in the same time as Sagan.

Roelandts was fifth, also with Sagan's time, to take the leader's yellow jersey by one second from Fabian Cancellara of Switzerland.
